Author(s): Howard Kurtz

Current Affairs | Latest Releases

"The mainstream media's obsessive hatred for President Trump outruns his anti-media fixation by a country mile, argues this evenhanded and incisive study of press relations with the Trump administration."

-Publishers Weekly

"'Defiance Disorder' Another new book describes chaos in Trump's White House"
-Ashley Parker, Washington Post

According to the media, Donald Trump could never become president. Now many are on a mission to prove he shouldn't be president. The Trump administration and the press are at war--and as in any war, the first casualty has been truth. Bestselling author Howard Kurtz, host of Fox News's Media Buzz and former Washington Post columnist, offers a stunning exposé of how supposedly objective journalists, alarmed by Trump's success, have moved into the opposing camp.

Kurtz's exclusive, in-depth, behind-the-scenes interviews with reporters, anchors, and insiders within the Trump White House reveal the unprecedented hostility between the media and the president they cover.

In Media Madness, you'll learn:

  • Why White House strategist Steve Bannon told Trump he is in danger of being impeached
  • How the love-hate relationship between the president and Morning Joe hosts--Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski--turned entirely to hate
  • How Kellyanne Conway felt betrayed by journalists who befriended her--and how she fought back
  • How elite, mainstream news reporters--named and quoted--openly express their blatant contempt for Trump
  • How Bannon tried to block short-lived Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci--and why Trump soured on him
  • How Ivanka and Jared Kushner aren't the liberals the pundits want them to be--and why Trump tried to discourage them from joining the White House
  • Why Trump believes some journalists harbor hatred for him--and how some liberals despise his voters
  • How Trump is a far more pragmatic politician than the press often acknowledges (and how the press dismisses his flip-flops when he flops their way)
  • What Trump got wrong about Charlottesville--and how Steve Bannon predicted the debacle
  • How the media consistently overreached on the Russian "collusion" scandal
  • Why Trump actually likes journalists, secretly meets with them, and allows the press unprecedented access
  • Why Reince Priebus couldn't do his job--and the real reason he left the White House
  • How Sean Spicer privately berated journalists for bad reporting--and why he and Kellyanne Conway were relentlessly attacked by the media

  • Never before has there been such an eye-opening, shocking look at what the White House and the media think about each other. It's not pretty. But it also makes for the most important political book of the year.
